  • enough rose water to cover the steak
  • red wine

  • 1 capful cherry brandy
  • pinch cinnamon

Combine these and place over a gentle heat to warm.For the Wellington 

  • 2 tbsp Rose Petal Jam
  • squeeze of lemon juice,
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest,
  • enough pancake batter to make 1 large crepe,
  • 4 rosemary leaves,
  • leaves from 1/3 thyme sprig
  • 150g puff pastry

  2. Chop the rosemary and thyme very finely, add to the pancake mixture and mix well.
  3. Lightly grease a large saucepan and pour in just enough mixture to cover the base of the pan.

  7. Place the kudu steak in the centre of the crepe and fold the crepe to make a “parcel” of the kudu.
